Man fails to show for sentencing

A MAN found guilty of attempting to avoid arrest by threatening police with scissors and a knife last year failed to show for sentencing yesterday.

Tweed Heads Local Court said Mark Anthony Gillon, 37, was unable to be sentenced and a warrant had now been issued for his arrest.

Inspector Greg Jago said he had no further details about Gillon's disappearance.

Gillon last appeared in court on May 16 where he was found guilty on a string of offences, including three counts of assaulting police, using a weapon to avoid apprehension and two counts of possessing prohibited drugs as well as two outstanding warrants.

He had pleaded not guilty to the charges and disputed most of the prosecution's evidence.

Magistrate Michael Dakin had adjourned the case for sentencing yesterday.

The charges relate to an incident at a Wommin Bay Rd address, Chinderah, last June.
